U/Under

 Woodpecker looking UNDER a fence rail

ABC Wednesday is celebrating the letter U this week. U is for UNDER.

 Machine inserting a railway tie UNDER the tracks

This was lots of fun to watch! I had had no idea of how railway ties were replaced!

Yummy treats UNDER wraps

Don't you love to attend events that serve sweets and fruit?

I am joining ABC Wednesday  HERE

I had best stay away from bake sales and any such event,because too much of the stuff ends up coming home with me.

Love the cute woodpecker in the 1st pic. I too have no idea about replacing railway ties. Oh yes, I love fruits but not too much of sweets.

Lowell said...

You really UNDERstand how to do a post on "UNDER!" I didn't know RR ties were replaced like that, either. Very interesting. Love the woodpecker.

Your "u" contributions are very inventive. I am fascinated by the machine and railroad ties.

Taken For Granted said...

I've seen these tie replacing machines before, but your photo caught it at a critical moment. Well done.

Good photos for the letter U. The machine to replace railway ties is very interesting. Who knew? Yes, I love going to events that have sweets. I have a terrible 'sweet tooth'. :)

The woodpecker shot is delightful.

Rose said...

I have never just stopped and watched them do the ties...I bet it was interesting.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I still don't see how it works to push a tie under the rail..it is fascinating to watch. I went with "under" also this week. Cute snap of the woodpecker!

A machine to put a tie under the railroad track is unique, and probably saves a lot of work and time for repairs. - Margy

I love the bird looking under! xx

Great shot of a curious woodpecker! Some little insect is in peril.
I think I need to avoid sweets for a while. I've already started overdoing it!
